The National Intercollegiate Rugby Association, the league of varsity women's college rugby programs, is working with Major League Rugby to develop referees, and the program also needs assistant referees and touch judges.

 The program is looking for young and up-and-coming rugby officials to work as ARs and Touch Judges to work the games officiated by MLR refs.

Candiates must be 16 years or older as of August 31. To be accepted, you must complete THIS FORM.

If you are not certified as an L1 or Touch Judge, go HERE to get certified by USA Rugby.

This is an excellent chance for officials to work with top referees, get experience, and learn.

The ARs and TJs will get training on expectations. There is a flat fee for games worked depending on your role at the game, and you will also receive an official NIRA referee's jersey.

Here is the schedule of games - question should be addressed to Amy Rusert  amy.rusert@nirawrugby.org

NCAA programs are in the following states:
VT, NH, NY, CT, MD, OH, RI, MA, NC, PA, ME
